So I thought I was being all cool and sexy the other night when I put up that image of me in candlelight. But along comes my friend Jeff Hodges with an email linking to a picture of a smiling dolphin: "For some reason, Kevin, I looked at this... and I thought of you," he emailed (that is to say: Jeff emailed, not the dolphin, whom I don't know).
I should be thankful, I suppose, that Jeff didn't select a picture of a frog or a pig. I'd like to think that Jeff selected the dolphin for its power, grace and sleekness—qualities that the ideal Kevin would possess. In reality, though, I thought it more likely that Jeff saw the dolphin's multiple chins and went, "Ah! Kevin!"
But here's Jeff in his own words, in a follow-up email:
Well, he has a huge smile and an enormous brain . . . and probably has some trouble getting around on land (a regular theme of your blog posts).
Sigh... guilty as charged.
